Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA nonprofit organization, government agency, Tribal government, faith-based organization, hospital, or IHE to transition youth with disabilities from guardianship frameworks to more independent and less restrictive decision-making support systems. Funding is intended to offer youth with intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD), ages 18-22, more options regarding personal decisions and responsibilities.

The target audience for this information includes youth with ID/DD, parents and caregivers of high school students with I/DD, special education teachers, education administrators, advocates, vocational rehabilitation counselors, guidance counselors, and school district officials. As a result of funding this Center, AoD expects that:

  • More students with I/DD will have more decisional options, such as Powers of Attorney, supported-decision-making (SDM), joint bank accounts, bill paying services, and medical or educational release forms, on completion of high school;
  • Fewer young adults with I/DD will be subject to guardianship;
  • Parents and school personnel at all levels will be more knowledgeable about alternatives to guardianship; and
  • Youth participating in this project will experience improved post-school outcomes such as post-secondary education experience and/or employment.

Key activities:

  • Partnerships
  • Background research
  • Resource Development and Broad-Based Outreach/Dissemination
  • Community of Practice
  • Youth Leadership Development
  • Evaluation
  • Sustainability

For additional information about these activities see Pages 6-8 of the NFO in Attached Files, below.
